Simon Gomme

Dept: Management
Country: Australia
Date joined: 31/1/2011

My role is to oversee all operations and processes of Powerplants business activity. I regularly visit customers, guide the sales group, oversee marketing and ensure we have a great team at Powerplants through recruitment and training.

My horticulture career commenced at the age of 7 overseeing the family herb garden, eventually followed by studying horticulture at Burnley college (Melbourne University) in 1992. After completing my studies I worked in the U.K. for Findons Nursery for two years. After returning to Australia I worked for Colegrave Seeds as production manager. Later I became managing director after Ball Horticultural company purchased Colegrave Seeds. In 2007 I relocated to Japan to manage Ball’s Asians subsidiaries and business activities in China, Korea, Japan and southeast Asia. In 2010 I returned to Australia and joined Powerplants as a partner with Carl.

When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my wife and three young very active boys. I no longer have any hobbies as work and kids don’t afford me any spare time!
